Joyce is a Californian whose West Coast pride remains strong even though she has grown to love Boston after four years. In college, Joyce's academic interests surrounded the anthropology of aging and caregiving, and her thesis earned the Thomas T. Hoopes Prize for outstanding scholarly contribution to the field. She graduated in 2017 summa cum laude and as a junior-elect member of Phi Beta Kappa. Joyce is currently an MD Candidate at Harvard Medical School.

Joyce gained extensive teaching experience as a member of the organic chemistry and biochemistry course staff at Harvard College, teaching pre-medical students in small groups as well as working with them individually. At Cambridge Coaching, Joyce tutors all components of the SAT and MCAT after having scored in the 100% percentile for both tests. Joyce also enjoys helping students improve their expository writing and hone their personal statements. She is particularly skilled at assisting applicants with their medical school applications.

Outside of work, Joyce loves to cook up a storm, spoil her taste buds with good food, and look ridiculous dancing it off at Zumba class.

Testimonials

  • "Joyce was very punctual and organized, well prepared for every session, flexible in terms of scheduling, patient and emotionally supportive! I gave her topics to review during the week, sometime before our session, and by our session she had a very methodical/organized approach to covering said topics. Was super resourceful in finding non-AAMC passages (e.g. Khan Academy) and really pushed me to use these other resources in addition to my practice materials. There was always so much to talk about that we often ran out of time! However, every minute was productive and helpful. I also really appreciated the mini check-ins in the beginning of our sessions - just to talk about life, the broader application process, where I am mentally, etc. These made it seem like she really cared about me, not just as a tutee but as a person! We met once a week and I thought that was a good amount - I had the autonomy to adjust my study schedule and habits if necessary but it was also good to have someone to debrief with at the end of the week. I always looked forward to our meetings, even when they turned virtual! Joyce was very responsive whenever I expressed my concerns about anything - studying, covid, etc. She was never judgmental and always made sure I was comfortable with our revised game plans. I feel like everyone at Cambridge Coaching is super caring and invested in your success - not just in gaining profits. Score went from 496 to 519." (Nancy, MCAT)

  • "Joyce made the daunting task of studying for the MCAT feel so much more doable, interesting (and fun!). She taught me how to study both efficiently and effectively, how to learn from every mistake I made, and how to build the strategy and confidence necessary to tackle tough passages that were unlike any I’d seen before. Joyce took the time to understand how I learned and where my weaknesses were, and always came prepared with passages that pushed me out of my comfort zone. She walked through each practice test with me and engaged thoughtfully with all of my questions, teaching me not only what the answer was, but why. Beyond pure academic support, Joyce consistently checked in with me about how I was feeling about the test, and about my week more generally. I loved chatting with her about college and medical school, and she was nothing but encouraging regardless of how well a practice test or passage went. Joyce is a wonderful teacher, and I couldn’t be more grateful for all of her support throughout the 4 weeks that she worked with me – I felt fully prepared and confident going into my test! Score went from 501 to 520." (Anonymous, MCAT)

  • "Joyce was always incredibly positive and encouraging even when I was stressed and overwhelmed. She created an extensive 3-month study plan and I tried my best to follow it. I looked forward to each week when I could meet with Joyce and problem solve through questions I had been struggling with or concepts that I had never learned before. Joyce came prepared to each session with extra passages for practice, explanations for any FL test questions, and provided emotional support when test prep became especially stressful. We were efficient, but also thorough. During some sessions, we would finish passages incredibly quickly, while in other sessions, we spent our time flushing out questions and truly understanding the AAMC style of thinking. Score went from 506 to 520." (Caroline, MCAT)
